use the subfig package, it's the new version of subfigure but not
backwards compatible (hence the name change)

then use

\begin{figure}[p] % to have a float on a float page
\centering % better than center
\subfig[caption text\label{xa}]{figure}
\subfig[another caption\label{xb}]{figure}
\caption{overall caption}
\label{main}
\end{figure}
